My sincere condolences to the family of Sue. She was my friend for over 20 years. My memories of Sue are meeting her many years ago when she became fast friends with my mother and I as we began joining several genealogical lineage societies that Sue was a member of. Particularly, DAR, Colonial Dames, and Daughters of the American Colonists, which was the first society we visited in which we first became acquainted with Sue. Sue was no nonsense and abhorred drama and people making a fuss over her. Sue was very proud and always chose the 'right' thing to do in every situation that I am aware of. Sue was not self-serving yet she knew how to enjoy life. I remember hearing often about her many travel adventures with Earl, who came into her life at the 'right' time, and at a time when they could still travel and see the world. I remember Sue telling me after one of her trips to Ireland about how Earl climbed to kiss the Blarney Stone but the walk up was too difficult and she told me "The Blarney Stone had to go without my kiss." Sue had this humor that always led to laughs. Sue was very intelligent and there was little that went on that she missed. Everyone always knew where Sue stood on issues and she would, in a matter-of-fact way, share her thoughts with you if she thought something needed to be said. Once at lunch many years ago, Sue confided in me regarding the loss of her first husband and the sadness she had felt. The Sue I knew would want to be remembered as a 'lady', which she was. We have missed her these past few years since her fall at home and her move into assisted living, but we respected her wishes to not have company. However, she could not escape the occasional card to let her know she was in our thoughts. Sue would not have wanted many to see her in a declining state. She loved her 'Willie's' ... all of them! Those of you who knew her know how she loved those dogs! Sue was a strong woman and if she thought enough of you to actually 'befriend' you, it was a huge compliment and you knew it. I remember when our Colonial Dames chapter marked the Marine Hospital with a historical marker. There were many of us in attendance that bright sunny day and I remember how proud she was that we were able to officially 'recognize' the Marine Hospital. I last visited Sue in her home that she lived in with Early after she had fallen down the basement stairs and banged herself up quite badly. We all felt fortunate that she lived to tell that story. And so, Riley sums it up in his following poem. One that suits my dear departed friend and your loved one more than any other I can think of....
She Is Just Away

I cannot say, and I will not say
That she is dead, she is just away!
With a Cheery Smile and a wave of the hand
She has wandered into an unknown land.
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be since she lingers there,
And you - oh you, who the wildest yearn
For the old-time step and the glad return.

Think of her fairing on, as dear
In the love of there, as the love of here,
Think of her still as the same, I say.
she is not dead - she is just away.

I’m sending my sincere condolences to the Bailey family and friends. This is one of life’s greatest challenges that we have to face. Jesus said, did, and promised something that gives us comfort and hope. In the Bible at John 11:11-14, Jesus likened death to sleep. This comfort us in two ways: 1) we are assured by those words that our loved ones are not suffering or in pain. 2) If a person is just sleeping, he will wake up! Notice what Jesus does next at John 11:43-44, this is amazing! If you would like to know more details about this, please download a free copy of the brochure Good News from God @ Jw.org and read lesson 6 along with the Bible.

Sorry to hear of your loss, May the God of all comfort give you peace and comfort at this most difficult time. Please read 2 Corinthians 1:2-4 and John 5:28,29 Where Jesus gives us a wonderful hope that is soon to be realized that is the hope of the resurrection. What a blessing for your family and mine . If you would like to learn more about this wonderful hope please go to jw.org and download a free copy of the book” What Can The Bible Teach Us? And read chapter 7” There Will Be A Resurrection. It is our hope that this information will help you and your family now and in the future.
